This is going to be a little more flexible than monster mud, and less prone to cracking. I prefer doing things this way (especially since it gives you the base color). Monster Mud is going to be a bit harder, which might sometimes be important. I'm sure someone can chime in with the advantages of Monster Mud over this, but other than that, I think this is the way to go.
